Mary Johns Wilson
For more than a decade, Mary Johns Wilson has criss-crossed Alabama on interstates and backroads, visiting the best tourist attractions, farms and businesses that the state has to offer. She captures those stories in this book and in segments for Simply Southern TV—a show produced by her employer, the Alabama Farmers Federation. She lives in Millbrook with her husband, Matt, and their always energetic rescue dog, Doug.
From its white, sugar sand Gulf Coast beaches to the sparkling lights and excitement of big cities to peaceful landscapes and breathtaking mountain scenery, this state truly is Alabama the Beautiful. Wilson captures that beauty, making it easy for travelers
The second edition of Mary Johns Wilson’s book “100 Things to Do in Alabama Before You Die” was released in March, and it is a great resource for anyone planning a road trip through Alabama this summer.
